Let the Bisque Firing Begin(Again)

The Meter's are "funkifying the" studio as I load a bisque. This jigsaw puzzle process is always interesting as it exploits my space relationship expertise! But it's not fun when I get behind on the calendar and run out of time. Since I usually need 10 or more bisque kilns to fire the wood kiln, simple math says that it will be a squeeker to get pots made, bisqued, glazed, loaded into the wood kiln and fired by Thanksgiving!

As prompted by a lack of clay, I'm heading over to the clay pit with shovel in hand to get a jump on a new batch of red dirt stoneware.
